Comments on: A 14th Amendment for all centuries http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/10/09/a-14th-amendment-for-all-centuries/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: amicidavinci http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/10/09/a-14th-amendment-for-all-centuries/#comment-77517 Wed, 16 Oct 2013 14:01:07 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=24882#comment-77517 Like the counties in CO, desiring secession, watch what happens as the spending and socialization of the US continues. You will see more and more dissent and most likely, eventually, outright rebellion. I think the founders knew that this would be a possibility. They knew that the power residing in cities vs. that of farmers and rural towns needed balance – so, the senate and the electoral college. That’s why they went with a constitutional republic and not mob rule. Fortunately, the believers in freedom will be able to defend themselves, since they take the 2nd amendment seriously, and the socialists will have to count on hired help to defend themselves. History repeats itself? It’s an interesting time to be alive.

It’s the law that our duly made debts receive the first priority treatment. So be it. The service on our debt is around $18 bil. a month and the gov’t. takes in over $200bil. a month,more than ten times the amount needed. There is plenty of cash available to meet our obligations. If the Emperor refuses to take that route,then he has willfully broken the law and should be impeached. The ONLY reason the dumbocrats want the debt ceiling raised is to provide them with more money to blow buying votes.

Our political parties are seriously hurting the country now. Both of them. We need a referendum vote on Term limits for congress and SCOUS and campaign finance reform. Nothing more or it will be turned into a never ending argument and well get nothing. Just those two things and all things can be achieved after just one or two election cycles. DEMAND IT!

Individual members and their staff enjoy immunity for what they say but can a Judge put the whole bunch in jail for violating a court order to enforce the 14th?

There can be extensive debate about debt incurred, but once it is there, it must be paid, or we have a deadbeat government. What could be more simple?

I would say that this Amendment indicates that the debt should be paid first, and then other bills paid until the money runs out. The government is taking trillions a year!

In my opinion, the amendment certainly has no interpretation that means the debt could be increased without Congressional authorization.

Repubs ignore that. Inconvenient truth. That they would follow up their Sequestration abomination with a shutdown then threaten the good faith and credit of their own country closes the case on their real patriotism. I say pull out that 14th Amendment and let her rip.
